Product characteristics

“Sole crepe” is the name indicating sheets of natural rubber mainly used to realize shoe soles. It is used principally for the production of high-quality shoe soles. Up until now, Gea Gomma has been the European leader in the production of natural rubber sheets for soles. Sole Crepe use ensures unrivalled advantages because it is a completely natural product.

GEA GOMMA’s SOLE CREPE is the rubber for shoes produced by calendering natural rubber collected from the best plantations, without adding any chemical additive. The different natural colours are obtained from different grades of raw rubber.

Compared to plastic soles, which stifle the foot and derive from processing pollutants, the natural “sole crepe” soles have excellent properties:

  • Ecological
  • Recyclable
  • Resistant to abrasion
  • Very elastic and flexible
  • Water-proof
  • Unalterable in contact with acid, alkaline and saline substances
